10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.
Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.
It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.
As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

I’ve been a fan since I was 13. 20 years later, I’m still in love with them. Just once I would love to spend a day with them and get to know them. I might become hooked and then never want to leave!
Yeah, they are THE only musicians I feel this way about. 8 years ago
I am a thirty one year old mother of two. The only true passion I’ve ever had was my passion for music. I have seen Depeche mode three times over the past 17 years. In one month, my sidekick sister and I will be traveling across the country to see Depeche Mode in San Francisco. (did I mention I am from a small town outside of Syracuse N.Y.)? The affection I have for this band is beyond words. My respect and admiration for all of their personal Triumpths and the continuing growth of their music just continues to grow. I’m not a psycho crazed fan, I would just love to meet them and show my genuine appreciation. Meeting them would be a dream come true, If wishes could only come true….. 8 years ago
I will meet them on Saturday, Nov 26th. It’s entirely too exciting! 9 years ago
